    Wiiflow - What to do with this .dol

    I've been on the wiiflow wiki today trying to get things setup for using a USB HD. It seems like I have properly installed the d2x-v7-final using the installer and instructions on the wiki. I have also installed the Wiiflow channel forwarder. But here is the problem.

    When I downloaded what I assume to be the actual Wiiflow program from the "Main Dropbox" link on the right side of the page I get this r417.dol file. I have no idea what to do with this file. I have been reading guides and browsing the forums and I can't seem to get a pin on what this is about. I'm not sure how to launch it to install wiiflow, where it needs to be placed etc.

    I don't know if this is relevant: I installed homebrew using an SD card and now have a Fat32 formatted USB HD available. I don't know if the wiiflow .dol thing needs to be placed on the hard drive if that is where I plan on launching my disk images from in the future.

    Any guidance and direction will be greatly appreciated. I have read a lot of guides today and don't mind reading another if I missed one that you know about.

    Thanks!

    I was indeed able to straighten out my problem thanks to your guides. It's a wonder why these steps are not on the wiki.

    What I needed to do was take that .dol file, rename it to boot.dol, and place it in the directories outlined under Installation: B: Forwarder Channels, as shown in the second guide you linked. After getting the directories set up, I was able to launch Wiiflow from within homebrew and the channel on the main menu. Things seem to be in working order now.

    Thanks to you Shift_Lock for directing me to those guides. I've been on a lot of different websites today and you were the only one that could straighten me out. Cheers!
